Chester Woods 50k or Whatever by waynelsona at Garmin Connect - Details

This will show you how the 50k and 10 mile races are run.  One loop around the meadow and out to the woods. The 10 mile is exactly the same except you won't go in the east meadow at all. The 10 milers will do a complete loop around the picnic area and then head for the woods

A few updates

  Registration is in high gear for the Chester Woods Races. We have almost 90 people from 5 states signed up so far and it's only February. The 50k race is capped at 100 people and it's 45% full, so sign up soon!
I find it's way easier to post some updates on the Facebook page so be sure to click on the link on the right side of the page. You can see whose registered there.Be sure to "like" the FB page and tell other trail friends to like it also.
When we finally get rid of old man winter I plan to slightly tweak the courses once more. I am going to eliminate the east meadow/campground section from the 10 mile course and add on the extra loop that the 50k runners use . This will cut down on running on asphalt and add some really beautiful sections of the Chester Woods trails. There is another hill on that extra loop :-)
I am going to take out the campground section in the 50k but I'll have to leave some of the meadow to get 31 miles :-)
The 5k will stay exactly the same.
